4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle from SoHo Organic Market, Elizabeth City, NC. Dark orange pour with a thin off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, tangerine, and wet grass. The flavor is well rounded with a nice bitter hop profile and yet an equally assertive amount of malt. This is not an IPA in disguise, this is a true APA, and one of the best.

35 cl bottle @ home. Pours clear amber with a white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is caramel, malt, and citrus. Flavour is much like the aroma – with an ever so slightly bitter finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Its deep amber colour means this beer isn’t really a pale. I’ll ignore that. Its a sticky toffee with marmalade and red apple on the nose. Initial bitter thrust then plenty of sweetness and spicey spiky carbonation. Amber ale. Not so impressed

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours deep deep amber and clear. Almost sporting a red color. Head is light and lingering. Nose has a full caramel and slightly burnt/toasty aroma mixed with a very light but fresh refreshing floral and citrus hop profile. Flavor is again firm full lightly burnt caramel body with some very faint but fresh flowery and light citrus hop notes. Sweet from the caramels but firmly bitter like you would expect from a stone brew. Nice beer.

Pine, grape aromas. Taste is a nice combination of bitter hops, followed by some sweet malts. A classic Stone APA, pretty efficient.
